Jingle Bell Run 5K Hits Finish Line

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – The Jingle Bell Run 5K was run on Saturday in support of the Arthritis Foundation.

The event was held to raise some holiday cheer and to help find a cure for arthritis.

Dozens of people came out to partake in the 5K.

One of the event hosts, Brooke Mattingly, says this event couldn’t have come at a more perfect time.

“I love Christmas,” Mattingly said. “I love the holidays. So, if you’re going to run a 5K might as well make it festive. Get everybody in the holiday spirit before, you know, Thanksgiving and the busyness of Christmas time. The weather definitely played its part, so it’s just a fun way to get in the holiday spirit.”
